Good points made below.

I'd also reccomend checking out EditDV from Digital Origin. It's a great
package and gives you more then enough power to meet all your needs.

Your getting into tough territory.

Hi8 is an anolog format, the 1394(apple calls it firewire, sony calls it
i.link) port imports digital information. its meant for cameras that record
in DV or in D8. You have three options

-import anolog ( for this you have to buy an anolog capture card for
your mac which can be rather expensive, check out
http://www.miro.com/start.asp )
-buy the sony converter, convert your footage to dv, edit it, convert it
back to anolog and send it back to your camera.
-buy a DV or D8 camera and reshoot your footage

These are all pretty expensive solutions, but those are the only ones that
come to mind. About editing software, use apple's final cut pro, it was
designed to work on teh G4, so it will be more stable and more powerful than
